We classify all Witt invariants of the functor $I^n$ (powers of the fundamental ideal of the Witt ring), that is functions $I^n(K)\rightarrow W(K)$ compatible with field extensions, and all mod 2 cohomological invariants, that is functions $I^n(K)\rightarrow H^*(K,\mu_2)$. This is done in both cases in terms of certain operations (denoted $\pi_n^{d}$ and $u_{nd}^{(n)}$ respectively) looking like divided powers, which are shown to be independent and generate all invariants. This can be seen as a…

Cohomological Invariants: Exceptional Groups and Spin Groups
This volume concerns invariants of G-torsors with values in mod p Galois cohomology - in the sense of Serre's lectures in the book Cohomological invariants in Galois cohomology - for various simple

Let k be a field with char k 6= 2. For i = 6, 7 we define invariants hi : H ( k,Spin(14) ) → Hi(k,Z/2)/(−1)Hi−1(k,Z/2). Further we show that the natural map H ( k, (G2 ×G2) o μ8 ) → H ( k,Spin(14) )
The Algebraic and Geometric Theory of Quadratic Forms

Degree three cohomological invariants of semisimple groups
We study the degree 3 cohomological invariants with coefficients in Q/Z(2) of a semisimple group over an arbitrary field. A list of all invariants of adjoint groups of inner type is given.
On “horizontal” invariants attached to quadratic forms
We introduce series of invariants related to the dimension for quadratic forms over a field, study relationships between them and prove a few results about them.
